With long-standing stints in Tower of Power and Santana, Chester Thompson just might be the most decorated and distinguished keyboardist of all time. It’s little wonder that this 1971 album, then, is one of the rarest and most coveted albums on the highly collectible Black Jazz Records label, is Thompson’s debut record, cut a couple of years before he joined Tower of Power, with a smokin’ band featuring fellow Black Jazz recording artist Rudolph Johnson on sax along with ace drummer Raymond Pounds (Pharoah Sanders, Stevie Wonder, Pointer Sisters) and trombonist Al Hall (Johnny Hammond, Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Harris).
Exclusive ORANGE / BLACK SWIRL vinyl produced by Real Gone Music in 2021. Newly remastered, and with liner notes featuring quotes from fellow Tower of Power member Dave Garibaldi and keyboardist Todd Cochran that testify as to Chester Thompson’s greatness. This is the first time the album has been reissued on vinyl.
